"Dr. Virdee is one of the most competent and compassionate practitioners I know! And no, she did not pay me to write that! I have a history of chronic headaches, gastric pain, and mental health diagnosis. She has treated me for all of these using different techniques. The treatment that stood out to me was Craniosacral Therapy. CST treatments lasted the longest and provided my body the space it needed to tap into its natural healing power. So, if you live close to her practice, I highly recommend her services and trying CST. Good luck and happy healing!"
"Last September I suffered a neck injury which, after recovery, left me with residual pain in my right arm and severe tightness in my shoulders which affected my every day life. Dr. Virdee suggested Craniosacral and after just a quick 20-30 minute session, the pain I had been experiencing for four months was gone. Even now, a month later, no pain has returned. I have been able to start getting back into a good exercise routine and feel like my normal self again. Dr. Virdee is extremely knowledgeable and it was obvious to me how deeply she cares about the well-being of her patients. I have had the pleasure of meeting several great doctors in my life, and I can say with confidence that Dr. Virdee is ranked among them. ~ B.W, age 25"
Craniosacral Therapy – Could You Benefit?
Oftentimes, healthcare providers only look for metabolic causes of disease and rarely delve into the importance of proper structure. Structure plays a huge role in our bodies ability to heal.
Think of it this way: If your key bends out of shape, you can attempt to unlock a door many times and on many different days with no success. This is true of our bodies as well. We often try to unlock our potential to heal, trying to open the door with as many keys (treatments) as we can find without thinking to fix the structure of our original key.
Because our nervous system carries so much complex information ranging from pain signals, sensory input from our environment, emotions and memories, it’s beneficial for all sorts of medical conditions. Specifically, it’s helpful for people who struggle with a mixture of emotional and physical health problems. Indications for cranioscaral therapy include:
What it is
Craniosacral therapy utilizes gentle touch to help restore proper alignment and functioning of the central nervous system. When the central nervous system is functioning optimally, people often see increased energy, improved mood and productivity, happier relationships and most importantly, improved health.
What to expect
Craniosacral therapists utilize very light touch therapy (about the weight of a nickel) to assess the alignment of the central nervous system. Your therapist will use gentle techniques to restore alignment and clear restrictions in your body. Many people feel calmer and contented after sessions because it encourages them to enter a deeply relaxed state. The benefits of one session can extend for hours to days after the therapy.
How many sessions will I need?
Every individual has their unique struggles with illness and journey through life, so it can be hard to estimate how many sessions they’ll need. Some people find relief in one session, others find relief over four sessions, while others need more regular check-ins.
